Food Prep Sunday!

It's been awhile since I posted about my weekly Sunday prep so I thought I'd do that tonight! I'm getting a recipe blog post together for an amazing salad I prepped today as well. It's a good one :)  

Some Sundays I have more energy than others and this weekend was kind of interesting because we didn't go out to eat at all.  We put the grill to use, had a date night at home and ultimately I took advantage of that and grilled a few extra things for this week. Overall, it was a great prep today and once again, I am happy and excited about my food this week.  It never fails that a little prep can really make me FEEL GOOD about my week.  Just like planning my workouts, food prep is such a key component to keeping us all healthy around here.  

Prep took me about 2.5 hours this morning and then I had clean up to follow.  After our vacation in Mexico, then feeling off (even after prepping last week) I knew I wanted to really fill up the fridge well this week.  When I got started this morning the kids were downstairs playing well together so I employed the help of my handy husband. This guy can chop melons and other oddly shaped fruit so much better than I can! He peeled some cucumbers, cut up a melon and then helped with my clean up.  What a swell (and sexy!) dude :)  

And now, the haul I ended up prepping today. 

  • Of course, Aunt Tilda's Brown Bread. Always.
  • Strawberries, watermelon, grapes, cucumbers, roasted spaghetti squash, carrots, pineapple, celery 
  • Behind the brown bread are the leftover cucumber, peppers and onions. I'll use them in salads and veggie egg white scrambles this week. 
Main dishes include:
So much goodness to be excited about! 

Have you tried prepping food once a week to be sure you stay on track with your health and fitness goals? How has it gone for you?
